On its website the LHG describes its role as "The Labour Housing Group (LHG) seek to ensure that housing of the highest possible standard is available for all members of the community regardless of their means.
As a socialist society affiliated to the Labour Party we work within the movement, both nationally and locally, to develop and promote workable socialist housing policies through our members.
If you believe another future is possible for our country and housing – become a member and join us in the fight".
Newham probably has the worse housing crisis in the entire country, so it makes sense that we should have a local branch here not only working on developing progressive housing policies but also working with the wider Labour movement to campaign for the funding needed to deliver safe, secure, good quality and affordable housing for all.
I am back on the Executive of the London wide branch of the LHG and maybe we can mirror their governance arrangements.
So on Wednesday 25 November 2020 at 7pm I will organise a zoom meeting for all Labour Party supporters in Newham, who are interested in housing issue,s to attend and form a Steering Committee to set up a branch.
Tomorrow I will email our CLPs, Labour Group, affiliated trade unions and our MPs (Lyn Brown MP is supportive) and Assembly member asking them to support and send the invite to their members.
